Takko Tuesday! - Fullmetal

Happy Takko Tuesday!

This is the last Takko Tuesday of the year!  I can't believe I have been doing this little weekly spotlight for six months and haven't run out of takkitos to share with you all.  Hopefully, the glorious takkos will never end!  And, hopefully, you are enjoying Takko Tuesday as much as I am.

Tonight's Takko Lacquer spotlight is "Fullmetal" from last year's winter collection.  Metallic flakies were all the rage last year and this polish was a different take on the ultrachrome version.  "Fullmetal" is a mix of soft black, silver and gunmetal colored microflakies in a clear base.  There is a sprinkling of some real silver metallic flakies and some sort of iridescent microshimmer in there as well.  The flakies are all very small so them apply so smoothly on the nail.  You can wear this polish as a topper or build it up to be opaque on its own in 3 coats.  For this mani, I did three coats on my thumb, pointer and pinkie with one coat over P2 Mint Mademoiselle on my middle and ring.  Everything was topped off with KBShimmer's Clearly on Top.

 I upgraded my iPhone for Christmas and these are the first photos I have taken with it.  I am really happy with how consistent with brightness and skin tone coloration is turning out.  My previous iPhone camera would auto-adjust things and I would need to edit the brightness and color sometimes to make the polish more true to the real life color.  I haven't done anything to these photos other than crop and add my watermark.  I also do not have a macro lens that fits this new phone but should have one soon.  Until then...ultra cropped, pseudomacro shots!

Make sure to stalk Takko Lacquer on all their social media platforms so you can be up to date with news on restocks and new releases.  Also...stay tuned to my Instagram for an awesome Takko giveaway planned for the New Year.  Exciting stuff, guys!
